HIV Posible Exposure

Around August 24th I was naked against a girl with possible penis to vagina touching. On September 3rd i had swollen lymph nodes in my left groin and were painful until recently. recently i went to go get tested on September 30th and the results concluded by the 4th Generation Duo test that i was HIV negative but HSV-1 positive. Recently I've been having a dry tongue that has eased up and pain here and there from the tip of my urethra. I am very nervous and would like to get the best help as possible.

If there was just touching, and no penetration, there was no risk.

Was the risk just the HSV-1. I'm nervous about my tongue feeling like this but is a 5 week HIV test conclusive?

You had no risk, your test is conclusive.

As James said if there was no penetration there is no risk.

There might have been a little

Your lack of details is really making if difficult to assess your risk.

Did you feel any penetration? It's really not that difficult to feel.

Sorry for the confusion. I was laying behind the girl and I was attempting to penatrate but it was unsuccessful. There might have been slight penetration but there was definitely contact. A week later i started to get intense toon pain due to a swollen lymph node in my left groin. There has been no fever or loss of weight just a passing cold from the change of weather  during the 5 weeks but being anxious and nervous I got tested at 5 weeks and the HIV 4th generation duo test came back negative. The HsV-1 test was the only positive test at the time. Would that be ruled conclusive, the doctors said yes but with my anxiety being at a all time high I started getting a dry tongue and my blood pressure has been through the roof. I'm just trying to figure out answers so I can feel well about my self and only have to deal with the HSV-1. Thank you for your paltience

Ok you had a negative duo test at 5 weeks post exposure. Only you will know what happened that night whether you penetration did succeed or not. But irregardless of that even if you had unorotected sex that night. You tested negative with a duo test at 5 weeks. Which is conclusive at 28 days. So YOU ARE HIV NEGATIVE. So stop worrying. Hsv 1 60-70percent of the world has it. So it's no big deal.
